Dr Garioch


In the present spungy state of the Teguments of your foot Dr
Monro is averse to the making of a new ulcer in them and thinks the
ulcer already opened sufficient. I shall be of the same opinion
till the present Ulcer he brought to discharge Pus more freely
but if this shall happen and the pain on the inside of the Tassus
at the same time continues violent I shall think it adviseable
to apply the Caustic on that Spot. But Dr Livingstone must
determine the propriety of all this by being on the Spot.

Edinburgh 25th December 1776

The night before I went to Gilmerton G. C. A C. I. L. & J. B. in --- 1

Notes:

1: This postscript is unusually cryptic. Cullen has presumably been called-out to attend a patient at the village of Gilmerton (now a suburb of Edinburgh) but the abbreviations have not been deciphered. They are probably an aide memoir either on what treatment was recommended or, since this is a joint consultation, by whom.
